Oftentimes, the early learning environment represents a child’s first relationship with an adult outside of immediate family. At Saint Edward’s School, our teachers quickly establish a strong foundation that gives children the confidence to approach their educational odyssey with curiosity and wonder. The teachers in the program start with a deep love of children, and they take a personal interest in watching for those “light bulb” moments every step of the way. Because our smallest students have the opportunity to pursue the best in education through their senior year, the pre-primary program is the launching pad for developing a spirit of inquiry and a lifetime of academic success.  

We inspire our littlest learners to think BIG in the Pre-Kindergarten, Jr. Kindergarten and Kindergarten Programs. These programs are both academic and social in nature. Our students are made aware of the world beyond Saint Edward’s School and our community through a rich variety of activities and experiences aimed at helping them grow and develop into intelligent, responsible, independent and caring people. Daily instruction encourages independent learning and is centered on an academic curriculum that offers core subjects and enrichment opportunities. We empower our young students to develop confidence and competency as they strive to become life-long learners!
